The updated guidelines for ResMed masks with magnets only apply if the patient or anyone in close physical contact with them while using the mask (such as a bed partner) has certain medical devices or implants that are specified below:
Active medical implants that interact with magnets (like pacemakers, implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICD), neurostimulators, cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) shunts, insulin/infusion pumps)
Metallic implants/objects containing ferromagnetic material (like aneurysm clips/flow disruption devices, embolic coils, stents, valves, electrodes, implants to restore hearing or balance with implanted magnets, ocular implants, metallic splinters in the eye)
